Steve Kilbey, front man of legendary atmospheric rockers The Church and writer of the worldwide hit Under The Milky Way (featured on the Donnie Darko soundtrack) joins forces with Martin Kennedy of acclaimed indie instrumentalists All India Radio to create an album made in heaven. Unseen Music Unheard Words combines All India Radio’s gentle melodic pop with Kilbey’s silken voice and lyrical know-how. It is a deep album, full of unexpected twists and turn on every listen.
“The Church are one the best pop acts of all time” – The Vine
The Church are, at heart and their best, psychedelic electricians, and their full-volume shows in recent years have been ringing endorsements for their stubborn longevity. - David Fricke, Rolling Stone
Steve Kilbey's distant, breathy vocals and harmonies mesh with the mellifluous guitars and sparse keyboard sprinklings….ethereal sounds of early Pink Floyd ("Destination"), the boldness of Echo ("North, South, East And West"), and the pop savvy of Lloyd Cole ("Reptile") together make Starfish a cohesive and compelling work. If you're looking for pop salvation, look no further than The Church. - CMJ
All India Radio:
One of the most elegant and simple instrumental rock albums I've ever heard..a heavenly cloud of radiance that is simply not of the material world. - Brainwashed.com
The 2003 Australian Album of the Year may well have been recorded by an act virtually nobody has heard of. Melbourne-based All India Radio's self-titled third album is a breathtaking triumph; one of the most exquisite, ethereal, instrumental records ever made in Australia. - The Brag Magazine
